Exploring the digital photography of Sophie PATRY

My name is Sophie PATRY and I’m fine art photographer living in France. As an autodidact I have been learning photography. I experience, I test and try, it is incredibly efficient to move me. I am guided by my feelings and my emotions. My work is my perception of the world. Landscapes, portraits and self-portraits, oscillate between dream and reality, giving one’s free rein to the imagination.

Much of my work is based on the self-portrait. This is a face to face, laid bare. I had to agree to see , show me other. Initially, I never thought of doing self-portraits. Then comes the desire to work a face, a body. I’m a fairly solitary and do not always have a model available, I started to take a few self-portraits, then again and again, like a game, a challenge, and it became a way of express myself!

I just think that my self-portraits are a work on myself. 15 photos of my series of self-portraits were selected in the competition “Rendez-Vous Image” and exhibited at the Convention Center in Strasbourg in January 2015.po de42f1_f1651a4c3f07418396823524f3489175.jpg_srb_p_600_600_75_22_0.50_1.20_0.00_jpg_srb
